The Value of $2

Wednesday, May 5, 2010 | 0 Comment(s)

I live approx. 100 yards from the local pizza/sub joint. they make both very good pizzas and very good subs (were talking chicken parm). To say I frequent this place is like saying I have a mere acquaintance with my left leg. And here is the thing. The nights when I usually want pizza are the days when I am exhausted and beaten down. And while 100 yards is factually not a great distance, i have just gotten home and I REALLY don't want to go back out.

Is this a classic 1st world problem? Absolutely. But its a problem nonetheless. And the difference between delivery and pick-up is essentially $2.00 exactly (and the personal shame of knowing they just drove across the street to deliver us a pizza).

Which begs the question, what's the value of $2.

And here is my answer: the value of $2, is my sanity. And if spending those few dollars brings me any measure of joy, then its 2 dollars well spent.
